** ''WesternAnimation/TheEmojiMovie'' managed to surpass ''Norm of the North'' in terms of [[InternetBackdraft public hatred]]. The film was greenlit sometime after Sony had their database get hacked back in late-2014, and was an attempt to WinBackTheCrowd following the aftermath of said hack. It didn't work... like, [[EpicFail at all]]. Criticisms include the [[AudienceAlienatingPremise mere premise of the film being about emojis]], the story itself being deemed as an unoriginal ClicheStorm, and the fact that it has widely been accused of being a [[TheyCopiedItSoItSucks blatant ripoff]] of other more popular animated movies (namely ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'', ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' and ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut''). As if that wasn't enough, ''The Emoji Movie'' also drew an intense amount of ire as it was believed that the film was the replacement for two planned movies about ''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'' and {{Medusa}} [[note]]with the directors being Creator/GenndyTartakovsky and Creator/LaurenFaust, respectively[[/note]] that Sony ended up putting into DevelopmentHell. Although it was later confirmed that the two films were cancelled long before the hack occurred, this still wasn't enough to alleviate the severe backlash Sony got. The situation only got worse for Sony, as the movie was panned by critics and audiences alike upon release, with only a 9% on Rotten Tomatoes, with the film being criticized for its blatant ProductPlacement and its [[BrokenAesop hypocritical]] [[{{Anvilicious}} obnoxious]] messages.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' can be considered this even within the Pokemon fandom, due to its IdiotHero who [[TookALevelInDumbass seemingly gets dumber]] once he builds up experience, its long-running status, frequent {{Narm}}, and often characterization and plotting that is at odds with the games (like Pikachu being able to hit Rhydon with an Electric attack). [[spoiler:As of [[YankTheDogsChain the Kalos League's conclusion]], this trope has gone supercritical, with even some diehard fans hating the outcome to death.]]

* ''Anime/OusamaGame'' became the premier example for the Fall 2017 anime season, second only to ''Dynamic Chord'' in Japan. It's been compared to ''Manga/FutureDiary'' in terms of over-the-top edginess. The [[spoiler:nonsensical reveal of what the King is]] pushed it even further into this.

** Similarly, the trailers for the upcoming ''Film/PeterRabbit'' have been [[TaintedByThePreview torn apart]] due to [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks deviating significantly]] from Creator/BeatrixPotter's original stories, even going so far as to include ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks''-style comedy. Upon release, it received [[InternetBackdraft further backlash]] from MoralGuardians for [[https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/feb/11/peter-rabbit-film-criticised-for-depicting-allergy-bullying portraying food allergy bullying]] [[UnfortunateImplications in a positive light]].

* Before ''Modern Warfare'', the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series received this treatment from people who weren't exactly impressed with the hype it garnered and found the games to be highly derivative of other similar games and works that the games received HypeBacklash and were deemed SoOkayItsAverage.

They have gotten better recently with the releases of ''4'' and ''5'' but people still remain leery of their popularity.

* ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'' has an invoked example in volume 4 with its "Snark Test". The reader is given a FracturedFairyTale version of ''Literature/{{Momotaro}}'' and invited to see how many things they can find to snark about.

* As far as Creator/MarkTwain was concerned, the entire body of Creator/JamesFenimoreCooper's work, and especially ''Literature/TheDeerslayer''. This resulted in "Literature/FenimoreCoopersLiteraryOffences", a hilarious TakeThat and early example of what [[TVTropesWillRuinYourVocabulary we call]] BooksOnTrope.
